Shellshock demo set-up and POC

I’m not sure if everyone has been made aware of this, but a BASH vulnerability has been discovered… /sarcasm

OK, seriously, as everyone has heard by now, “Shellshock” is the new hot topic right now. Since I am one who learns by doing, I decided to give it a go, and see exactly how it works. My first instinct was to see how it works against the SSH protocol (CGI write up is coming soon). Now that I see what it actually is, I see that it would take an extraordinary set of circumstances for it to be a viable method of gaining entry (at least through SSH), but should those circumstances be present in your environment, it could be devastating (So make sure you patch everything up!).

Simple Buffer Overflow bypassing SEH

Here recently, I have gotten more interested in exploit writing, and the entire process of it. Being that I am noob to this, I obviously started my quest by looking for tutorials. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to find the “Explain like I’m 5” tutorial that I needed, and the entire process took me much longer than anticipated. Now that I finally got it figured out, I wanted to share with the world! 😀
